While I understand you see it as an unimportant issue- you just realize that to those who are so adamant about its legalization, are so fierce in our stance simply because you are wrong when you say it isn't as important. From the number of non violent offenders who have the potential of getting out of the prison system, to those who truly need it for medicinal purposes, to the benefits it could have on the economy. Marijuana is a COMMODITY the United States should not ignore. I submit that the importance is legalization of marijuana is in fact equal to that of climate change and world affairs. Is not the ECONOMY and important issue?
